Prides Cottage

This charming semi-detached thatched cottage is in the village of Child Okeford, set six miles from Blandford Forum in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Upstairs are two bedrooms, one of which has a Victorian king-size iron bed and an original fireplace.

The cottage is set on a national cycleway which opens up miles of countryside to discover and there are a number of stately homes nearby. There are also a few more unusual attractions including Monkey World, Bovington Tank Museum and the Fleet Air Arm Museum.
